Abstract—This paper gives an exact and explicit expression of the structured singular value for robotic manipulators with a passivity based control in port-controlled Hamiltonian form, even though it is NOT possible to give the exact or explicit structured singular value for general systems. First, we focus on dynamics with endlink mass perturbation after the settling time. Second, we derive the exact and explicit structured singular value for manipulators by using structural properties of the dynamics. The derived structured singular value is nothing but the structured singular value of manipulators without control because the passivity based control preserves the Hamiltonian structure. Furthermore, based on the derived structured singular value, we quantitatively analyze the robust stability of robotic manipulators with the passivity based control.

    ABSTRACT: This paper addresses trajectory tracking control of port-controlled Hamiltonian systems via generalized canonical transformations and passivity-based control. The main strategy adopted in this paper is to construct an error system, which describes the dynamics of the tracking error, by a passive port-controlled Hamiltonian system. After obtaining the error system, tracking control of the original system can be achieved by stabilizing the error system via passivity-based approach. First, a fundamental framework is provided for constructing the error system via generalized canonical transformations. Then a concrete design procedure is derived for a class of electro-mechanical systems. Furthermore, the proposed method is applied to a magnetic levitation system and laboratory experiments demonstrate its effectiveness.

    ABSTRACT: This paper will very briefly review the history of the relationship between modern optimal control and robust control. The latter is commonly viewed as having arisen in reaction to certain perceived inadequacies of the former. More recently, the distinction has effectively disappeared. Once-controversial notions of robust control have become thoroughly mainstream, and optimal control methods permeate robust control theory. This has been especially true in H-infinity theory, the primary focus of this paper

    ABSTRACT: Interconnection and damping assignment passivity-based control is a technique that regulates the behavior of non-linear systems assigning a desired (port-controlled Hamiltonian) structure to the closed-loop. Since the introduction of this controller design meth-odology five years ago, many theoretical extensions and practical applications have been reported in the literature. The theoretical developments include some variations and shortcuts that are useful when dealing with particular classes of systems, and the incorporation of additional features to handle control scenarios other than just stabilization. On the application side the method has provided solutions to a wide variety of physical problems. The purpose of this paper is to review the fundamental theory, main new results and practical applications of this control system design approach as well as to discuss the current open problems and future directions.
